Here are some thoughts on a few of the matchups:
Burrow vs Lawrence Round II
Joe Burrow and the Bengals will host Trevor Lawrence's Jaguars in Week 4 [Sept. 30th] on Thursday Night Football, a source confirmed to AllBengals.
Not only will it be it a battle of the past two No. 1 picks in the draft, but it's also a rematch from the 2019 National Championship Game when Burrow led LSU past Lawrence's Clemson Tigers 42-25.
We know at least two of Cincinnati's first four games of the season will be at home.
New York Bound
The Bengals will hit the road to play the Jets in Week 8 according to a report from Dov Kleiman. The game will take place on Sunday, October 31 at 1 p.m.
It'll be the Bengals' first look at second overall pick and former BYU quarterback Zach Wilson.
Hit the Road
Cincinnati will travel to Denver to play the Broncos in Week 15. This is one of multiple road games that the Bengals should have a chance to win.
Finale in The Land
The Bengals will finish the 2021 regular season in Cleveland on Sunday, January 9th. There could certainly be playoff implications in the Battle of Ohio for the first time in years.
